HENRICO COUNTY, Va. – Crime Insider sources tell Jon Burkett the actions of suspects in recent Henrico car break-ins match the description of the notorious Felony Lane Gang.

The thieves are known for stealing victim’s purses and identification from cars, and then using disguises to appear like their victims.

The suspects will then go to a bank in a different jurisdiction and withdraw money out of the victim's account.

The gang is called the Felony Lane Gang because they go to the teller in a far lane of the bank, do their business, and quickly leave.

Crime Insider sources said that was the same script suspects followed in recent Henrico car break-ins.

Those sources said several cars were broken into at the YMCA parking lot off John Rolfe Parkway last week.

Less than 24 hours later, someone dressed like the woman in the stolen ID visited a Chesterfield bank off Hull Street.

Crime Insider sources said the thieves got almost $2,000 during one withdrawal. The second time the bank called authorities, but the suspects fled before police arrived.

The group is known to pop up in an area for a few weeks then move on to the next target.

Police are reminding all residents to lock their car doors at all time.
